Emirates’ Newcastle – Dubai Service To Restart In October


Emirates is scaling up services with additional route resumptions and more flights across its European network, responding to the easing of international entry protocols and an upsurge in passenger demand.

With clear signals that passenger confidence for international travel is returning, the airline is advancing its plans to increase services and capacity to make it easier for its customers to connect to and from its extensive European network via Dubai.

In the UK, Emirates continues to boost its operations and will reinstate flights to Newcastle Airport (NCL) from 15th October, offering four weekly flights to the northeast of England, all operated by the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a two-class configuration.

The first flight will depart Dubai International (DXB) at 14:30 and arrive in Newcastle (NCL) at 19:10, while the return flight will depart Newcastle at 21:10 and arrive in Dubai the following day at 07:25.

By the end of October, the airline will offer 77 weekly flights. UK weekly operations include six times daily London Heathrow operation, double daily flights to Manchester, 10 weekly services to Birmingham, daily services to Glasgow, and four weekly services to Newcastle.

Earlier this month, UAE moved onto the UK’s ‘amber’ list for travel, and travellers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel.
